I unscrewed the 6 phillips head screws in the back of the dryer. I twisted the rotary start switch counter clockwise and layed the new switch next to it. I pulled one wire at a time making sure I connected to the correct terminal to the new one. I twisted the dryer timer motor counter clockwise and layed the new motor next to it. I pulled one wire at a time making sure I connected to the correct terminal to the new one. I fitted new timer knob on dryer timer. It only fits oneway because of the d-shape. I screwed the 6 phillips head screws in the back of the dryer. Done.

GE Gas Dryer. Read your problem solutions very carefully. My machine was squeaking in the front area. It was the front bearing. Make sure you order the large front bearing and the 2 sets of small plastic bearings. Dryer now works great. Problem solved in about 1 hour. It would have taken less time but the dryer is ina really cramped place. Thanks you saved me $700. That is great for $47.00 worth of parts.

Received timer in just two business days with standard shipping. Found PartSelect had best price compared to others. Unplugged dryer. Removed three screws from top of dryer back. Removed the knob and sleeve. Tilted dryer top forward to access the timer. Twisted timer counterclockwise to remove, then moved wires one at a time to the new timer. Wire terminals were pretty tight, so had to use pliers to carefully pull them off. Carefully placed sleeve and knob on new timer. Works great now!

Removed dryer top panel, and front panel. Cleaned all lint buildup in vent system. Replaced lower felt seal, drum bearing, and 4 drum slides. Three of the old slides were gone. Unit runs like new. Very happy. Was already shopping for new appliances, when I found your website.

Drum would not turn when clothes were loaded.

I went online for instructions and replaced the worn parts. My son-in-law had already tried a new belt, which did not work because of the wear on the bearing and slides. I found the web site to be very helpful because I had not seen the dryer prior to disassembly by my son-in-law. The old slides were worn so much that the drum was wearing a hole in the bearing. I advise replacing the slides when the dryer begins to make a squeaking noise and not wait for the bearing to start to wear.

Googled possible problem where noise was coming from. Went to Parts Select web site. Ordered felt and drum bracket. Removed screws behind control knobs and removed top of dryer. Removed two screws on front inside dryer (left/right side) this allowed me to remove front panel of dryer. Unattached wires. Drum bracket is located above door opening...pretty much snaps out, felt piece is located on bottom bracket. Felt piece was replaced and new top bracket replaced. Reattach wires, lift drum slightly to fit doo iInto place. Dryer still made noise. Noticed I did not have any drum slides! Drum slides slide into top of front bracket at 10/2 o'clock position and 11/1o'clock. Easy and very inexpensive dryer repair!! My husband was very impressed that I could take dryer apart and fix!!!
